BIAFRA: Petition to United Nations General Assembly on the Violation of Universal Declaration of Human Right as Proclaimed

BIAFRA: Petition to United Nations General Assembly on the Violation of Universal Declaration of Human Right as Proclaimed

With due respect and unreserved passion, we humbly tender this petition that the essence of this assembly which has protected human rights without boundaries from time immemorial may prevail on a part of the world that has endured extinction and again at the verge of renewed extinction for anchoring on your esteemed 2007 DECLARATION ON THE RIGHTS OF INDIGEONOUS PEOPLE TO SELF-DETERMINATION, and of which her leader's right has grossly been violated

This part at the verge of extinction possesses no threat to human nature, humanity and human right. This part called Biafra was made a species of terror since 1914, Biafra had endured pogroms before the run in of 1967 genocide against them that was called BIAFRA VS NIGERIA WAR. It is crucial to bring to your notice that 3.5million civilian Biafrans lost their lives whilst one-third of 30,000 of her soldiers lost their lives.

Up till date, loss of Biafran lives scattered all over the country called Nigeria and countries of the world due to marginalization of the land without measure but we take notice of Biafrans in Nigeria. The sectional terror group called Boko Haram terrorizes Christians and by virtue of 1914 amalgamation of Muhammedian emirates of the North and Southern Christians- Biafrans of 100% Christianity suffer terror and are soft targets

In 1967, Biafrans attempted to be independent nation but was re-annexed after a brutal genocide that was adorned with conspiracy of silence. Within three years of the war; by virtue of war crimes, Biafrans lost 3.5million lives as a result of land, sea and air blockade; whilst children perished by starvation, women, civilian men and refugee camps were the target objective of Nigerian soldiers.

Conquered, Biafrans were made slaves by conquest, marginalized and left under perpetual harsh economic and governmental policies even while the resource that sustains the economy of entire country belongs to them.  All effort was to hamper their development, subjugate Biafrans and leave them out of trend in order to enslave them, exploit all they have and keep them down as their rise might resurgence independent state.  Investigations have it that nothing at all has been addressed in their land and with immemorial absence of federal government in Biafra land nor observed as its federating unit.

This honorable world assembly; UNITED NATIONS, in 2007 launched- THE UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF THE RIGHTS OF INDIGEONOUS PEOPLE. However, this right gave legal backing to all activities of IPOB, Biafrans tapped into this groundbreaking declaration, to achieve her independence within the ambit of this law as proclaimed by UNITED NATIONS GENERAL ASSEMBLY IN 2007.

In 2009, INDIGEONOUS PEOPLE OF BIAFRA (IPOB) was established by Nnamdi Kanu to pursue the self-determination of the people of Biafra as proclaimed by UNITED NATIONS. In 2015 IPOB was duly represented in the world convention of indigenous people, afterwards, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu was officially certified the leader of INDIGEONOUS PEOPLE OF BIAFRA (IPOB).

In keeping with the law, Radio Biafra was established in substitution of armament; for sensitization, debates and propagation of the Biafran cause.
A sanctuary of freedom of speech and a banner of truth.

Radio Biafra became Biafrans' voice and through the platform, our plight is communicated and reason for our independence also to the world at large.

On 14th of October, 2015 the leader of INDIGENOUS PEOPLE OF BIAFRA (IPOB) was arrested en route to Biafra land in his hotel room. Detained and charged to court on criminal conspiracy, belonging to unlawful society and criminal intimidation. The court ordered his conditional bail which was met while his trial goes on but Buhari-led Nigeria and her DSS disobeyed an order of a competent court of jurisdiction. Subsequently, Nnamdi Kanu was detained, tortured and subjected to degrading treatments in what they termed interrogation.

On the ruling of the magistrate court, it discharged and acquitted Nnamdi Kanu and high court which had ordered for Kanu's detention within 90days also ruled that he the litigant be unconditionally released. Against these three court orders, Nnamdi Kanu is yet being held in Kuje prison getting to a year without fair trial.

On the maiden presidential media chat of the President of federal republic of Nigeria Muhammad Buhari, he established his stance on the contempt of court orders by DSS. He disappointedly reaffirmed and supported the act, noting that he cannot release Nnamdi Kanu for broadcasting on radio Biafra and for having dual citizenship passports; he alleged that these acts were atrocities that his government will not respect the order of the courts.

By virtue of this statement and act, I cite THE UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHT AS PROCLAIMED BY THIS ESTEEMED ASSEMBLY in Paris on 10th December 1984. Furthermore, this admired assembly swore that this declaration shall be universally protected. This resolution 217 A part states as follows= Article 4= No one shall be held in slavery or servitude, slaves and the slave trade shall be prohibited in their forms.

Article5= No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.

Article6= All are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to equal protection of the law.

Article7= All are entitled to the equal protection against any discrimination in violation of this declaration and against any incitement to such discrimination.

In view of this and forthwith over Buhari's unethical confrontation on Biafrans and Nnamdi Kanu the leader of INDIGEONOUS PEOPLE OF BIAFRA. That he Buhari be compelled to obey court orders or called to order, mandated to free hundreds of Biafrans agitating for self-determination and conduct referendum in line with UNITED NATIONS approval to arrest the spilling of more Biafran blood.
